Be Anything You Want Me To Be by FireLilyCosplay Be Anything You Want Me To Be by FireLilyCosplay
Photographer: LJinto

This costume was an absolute must for me. I saw the video "Do You Wanna Date My Avatar?" when it came out back in August 2009 and I fell in love with Codex's costume. I was going to try and make it for Dragon Con, but we ended up not going, so I took my time with it and made this costume for AUSA in November.

Ah!! Codex is so adorable!!!! The corset is made from red corduroy with steel boning, front busk closure and a separate front panel that snaps on on top of the busk. It laces up with red leather lacing in the back and is adorned with gold bias tape and red jewels. The skirt is three circle skirts: one lining slip, one Casa satin and one sheer overlay.

The top is ivory ribbed knit fabric that I sewed into a tank top, then overlayed the bust and shoulders made from Casa satin, craft foam, gold trim and jewels. That was probably the hardest part of the costume! The gauntlets are craft foam and Casa, with gold trim and lacing.

The necklace is a 6mm gold torque band purchased from Ebay, and I made the frames from gold vinyl and glued on all the rhinestones. The headband is also from Ebay, painted gold and adorned with jewels. The knee pads are red corduroy and gold lame with fleece filling. I used brown felt for the leg wraps, and modified a pair of shoes I already owned and sewed up the shoe pads from the red cord.

The staff was pretty easy, though it gave me a lot of trouble while in the making. PVC pipe, cardboard, red jewels, foam, a big clear ornament ball and lots of paint went into it!

I am so in love with this costume!!!!!! I love every part of it and I'm so freaking happy that I made it! I can't wait to wear her more ^.^

Love it. Great work. Have you made it to Dragon*Con since this? There were several Codexes (Codices) there this year. :D

I've never been to Dragon*Con and don't really want to until they move it to a convention center. Seems way too crowded and not cosplay-friendly enough for me :D

Codex! Yay!

Oh, you're totally making me want to do a Knights of Good group!

(except that would probably make me Zaboo... grr.... stereotype'd)

I have been wanting to do this costume so bad. It just got pushed back again for me. It great to see someone with a lot of talent do one of my favorite gaming related costumes I have since. ^^

Awesome! Would you ever consider making the accessories (staff, necklace, armbands, headband, gauntlets) for a commission, for me? I would pay whatever you asked, in installments if I couldn't afford it all at once.

Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of time since I work full time so I don't take commissions. But there are plenty of commissioners out there, like God Save the Queen, who you could talk to about the accessories :)
